Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 13 August 2083 at 12:45.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 9 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1034 of Meeus index or 1987 from Brown series.
Length of current 1034 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1035 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠299.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 370 599 km (230 280 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 256 km (229 445 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

8 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.955°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.925° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
